Hi Peter,

Indeed, it can be dangerous, but, we are prepered for this. We are the CSIRT of RNP (Brazilian National Research and Educational Network), so, all this emails will be sent to us (for a unique account). After this, we process these mails and send to correct clients. We are working with ~ 90k events/day. Of course, these events are send for a lot of institutions and universities around the country (We have ~1200 clients).

I'm working hard to avoid false positivie, so, analyse the payload is important to do it.

Thanks by your help.

Regards,

This could be really dangerous  - what if you receive 5000 alerts within
a few seconds ? The way you explain your set up - it would mean that you
will send 5000 e-mails? (you or your organization might get black listed
that way)
